Fowler no hero to Fury's other Scouser

After four goals in six games, North Queensland Fury's other Liverpudlian, James Robinson, admits he finally has good things to say about teammate Robbie Fowler.

Just don't expect Robinson to go overboard with the sort of hero worship being bestowed on the A-League's biggest star who scored another fine goal against Sydney FC on Saturday.

"I am a mad blues (Everton) fan, the opposite of Robbie," says Robinson.

"We never really have any good things to say about Liverpool players, but you always appreciate a good footballer and that is what Robbie is."

Their inter-city English club allegiances make for some good exchanges: "We have a bit of friendly banter but that is all it is."

Fowler's super strike against Sydney secured the Fury's first-ever A-League victory and former Melbourne and Perth midfielder Robinson saw it as reward for a united team.

"Robbie's goal was a tremendous goal but it was a great team effort by the all the boys on Saturday night and it shows what a good unit we are," he said.

While fans regard the former England striker as something special Robinson said Fowler was happy to be treated no differently to his teammates.

"He is a fantastic addition to the team and the league but he is just one of the boys ... and that is the best thing about him," Robinson said.

Robinson grew up in Liverpool and after completing his apprenticeship at Crewe, enjoyed a spell in Iceland before moving to Australia to play in the Victorian State League before winning a contract with Melbourne Victory.

"I just came out here (to Australia) with the odd chance just to see what happens," he said.

"It was the off-season, I was training in the Victorian Premier League just to keep my fitness up .. then I signed with the Victory," he said.

Robinson became an instant hero when he scored his first and only goal for the club in the 92nd minute of the 2007 A-League semi-final against Adelaide United, the looping header sent the team through to their first A-League grand final.

"It was a fantastic achievement for the whole team ... it was fantastic and it was an experience but hopefully there is a lot more experiences like that along the way."

The 26-year-old said the Fury are not getting carried away with the win over Sydney and trying to focus on their next game.

"We are a good, honest, hardworking bunch of lads, we know this is only the start of it," he said.

"We have just got to keep our heads down and keep working hard and the goals and the wins will come."
